True... I feel kinda bad for our Black Hills visitors dealing with all of that!

Now if the SDDOT would go forward with the I-29/I-229 studies and funding... It's limiting development (mainly a huge healthcare research center near I-29 & 85th Street), and the developers have even said that the DOT is dragging it's feet.

2 seasons, in South Dakota.....Snow Season & Road Construction Season. LOL
and speaking of roads........I traveled hiway 81 a few weeks ago. From hiway 34, going north on 81, anything over 55 mph, was faster/rougher, than I cared to travel. for 10-12 miles.
Also Hiway 37, from Alpena Corner going North to Huron, is breaking up, and worth planning a little extra travel time, to slow down. again 10 miles, or so......

I-29 going northward has some construction going on all summer between colman and brookings.. that's going to be my commute route very soon once I move to my new home.. one lane, speed limit 65, but usually you'll end up going 55 or less.

Construction can be bypassed if you feel like it, going northward, by exiting on the highway 34 exit and going west to 471st Ave, which remains paved all the way to Brookings. Likewise you can bypass going southbound by exiting at Exit 127 south of brookings and taking the same road, 471st ave, all the way south to colman.

It's nice to know that such a large amount of my commute will be on new interstate though. lol

471st Ave
isn't that a 55mph road? Advise to be alert, for farm equipment, as haying season is upon us..............

The thing with interstate construction is you are usually always moving. Instead of 75 MPH is might be 65 or 55, sometimes 45 MPH. You might be slowed down due to various factors. If you jump off the interstate to avoid traffic the delays may be longer.

You might run into farm equipment being moved, or having to come to a complete stop, slower speed limits, ad nauseum

Agreed. It's usually not worth it in the country.
On the other side of the coin, it is always nice to see the back roads/towns of South Dakota!

The Interstate's safer too. The construction between Rapid City-Sturgis-Spearfish is terrible too! There's about 3 times where it slows down to 55mph and it's head-to-head traffic the whole way. Takes forever to get anywhere out there! Hopefully it's all done before Rallytime.
